Definition: Mentoring is the facilitation of learning between a mentor (typically a more senior domain expert with intimate subject matter knowledge, skills and attitude) assisting a mentee (typically a more junior person with less subject matter knowledge, skills and attitude).
It is typical for a mentor to have a caring, passionate or even loving attitude towards the mentee, while in coaching the relationship is typically more professional.
M frequently is a 2-way process, in which the mentor also learns from his mentee.
The terms M and coaching are frequently used interchangeably.
